I was given the opportunity to attend Fashion Week San Diego and thought it was the most appropriate time to grab a girlfriend and head down to the Broadway Pier. My fashionista friend and long time client Selma Alameri was my date for the night. As we got to the venue we were stopped to snap pics of our very loud and proud looks. Too loud? Not a chance! I mean half the fun of fashion week is dressing up in a self expressive outfit that onlookers can either love or hate!
I wore Clover Canyon Grand Finale Fall 2013 pant suit. I paired it with an Equipment basic silk tank, Christian Louboutin Pigalle nude pumps and Givenchy quilted bag. My added touch was a cute ‘Happy’ necklace and my vintage Rolex. I was so inspired after fashion week in New York and after my recent visit to Warwick’s bookstore. I needed the motivation to wear something edgy, cool and unexpected. This colorful pant suit was the perfect fit for my personality.
Selma wore a black BCBG Max Azria blouse, RVN gold jacquard leggings, Alaia lace up ankle boots and Chanel’s beautiful Reissue bag. Her outfit was on point. I love that she didn’t go the safe route and wear what everyone else wears (all black) instead she rocked a daring look by adding the gold RVN leggings. She looked effortless and very fashion forward! BTW, did you see the shoes?? They were everything!!!! I lost my breath looking at those beauties. OH em GEE!
To give a little back story on FWSD, founder Allison Andrews is going on her 3rd year of presenting. She did a beautiful job organizing this event. The venue couldn’t have been at a more perfect location, the timing was spot on as we got to watch the sunset right before the show got started. To make things even better, they had a nice bar serving my fave of course.. CHAMPAGNE! ;) Luna bar was one of the many sponsors at the event so we grabbed a little snack before heading to our front row seats. mmm delish.
The runway shows were very entertaining and each collection was different from the rest. I think the designers did a great job of incorporating their personalities into their designs. I believe your brand should reflect who you are and what you represent. The music choice was really good too! I was dancing in my seat to a few songs! lol. I had a great time at FWSD and I look forward to seeing this event evolve in the coming years. If you are a San Diego native or new to the area, check it out next year! Make a fun girls night out of it, dress up in some daring duds and paint the town red! Loubi red of course! ;)
